Living in a small town means I don’t have access to stores like Whole Foods (expensive anyway!), Trader Joe’s or Costco unless I drive two hours. Add the cost of gas and the value of my time to the cost of healthy food and I’ve suddenly spent way more on groceries than I can afford.
In a world where drive-thru hamburger joints and $1 pizza slices outnumber farmers markets and grocery stores, eating healthy can be a challenge. Even when you make up your mind to resist deep-fried temptation and go for a salad, you too often end up in sticker-shock.
Trust me, I know how this goes — I’ve been that person in shock at checkout. A small bag of jerky shouldn’t cost 7 times the cost of french fries. I’ve tried Sam’s Club: way out of my way and they just sell larger quantities of the same processed foods I can get at WalMart. I’ve tried Amazon: too much to sort through. Frustrating. I’ve tried Azure Standard: great healthy choices, high price tags. Luckily I’ve discovered a new online marketplace that combats this trend. Thrive Market, a recently launched website, sells the wholesome, healthy food I love at wholesale prices everyone can afford.
How can Thrive Market offer these deep discounts?
The company’s merchandising team works directly with brands to purchase natural, healthy foods and products at wholesale prices. These prices are typically 25 to 50 percent lower than what the same products sell for in brick and mortar stores, and even traditional online retailers. I know I’ve found some amazing deals on Thrive Market!
Want to see what I’ve purchased so far?
Instead of adding on the typical retail markup, Thrive Market passes the savings on to their customers. All of the products Thrive Market offers are sold at true wholesale prices. They’re really looking out for the average shopper!
What about the brand name products I love? Can I get those at Thrive Market?
These products aren’t subpar or knockoff brands, either — Thrive Market carries many of the same brands I shop for at the natural foods store in my neighborhood. You can find products to fit your needs on the site and they have a robust Paleo and grain-free section, to boot.
The site includes the option to “shop by” specific dietary needs and certifications. You can filter the catalog by values including certified organic, non-GMO, hypoallergenic, raw and many more.
Thrive Market offers something for anyone and everyone who want to eat healthier and live well.Thrive has a really nice, curated mix of products to choose from that are the best-in-class of organic, non-
GMO, vegan, raw, paleo and gluten free. However you like to shop, you can find exactly what you’re looking for.
How does Thrive Market work?
Like Costco or other warehouse clubs, Thrive Market is membership based. Thrive members purchase a membership for $59.95 per year. That’s just $5 per month, if you break it down. With a Thrive Market membership comes access to more than 3,000 of the top organic, non-GMO, healthy products. You can simply browse the website, fill your cart with whatever products you like, and have your order shipped directly to your home.
If the membership fee seems like a big commitment, never fear: Everyone can try out Thrive Market with a free one-month trial before you start paying the annual fee.
This membership model is a key part of the business model. There’s strength in numbers — in other words, Thrive Market’s buying power, and the ability to get great deals, increases as membership increases.
Thrive Market’s social good mission is something I can get behind!
Your Thrive Market membership fee has an even more important function. For every paying member who joins, Thrive Market will donate one free membership to a family in need. This social mission fits into Thrive Market’s larger goal — making healthy food accessible for everyone.
Low-income families are most likely to eat unhealthy diets and suffer the long term health consequences of those choices. Thrive Market is on a mission to make access to healthier choices easier — especially for those that have very little discretionary income, and are often forced to buy the cheapest food that isn’t always the most nutritious. I would much rather support a socially conscious company than an enormous corporation.
